Want to make this pretty felt bird? All it takes is some felt, a bit of stuffing, and a few easy embroidery stitches. And a pattern, of course.
I just gave Daisy a bit of a makeover. Look how pretty she is in this cream felt! (It’s actually called straw.)
She uses just half a sheet of wool-blend felt for the body, a few small scraps for the beak and comb, and embroidery thread in your favorite colors. If you want a one-click source for all the supplies, you can find some materials kits here.
Daisy uses only a few basic embroidery stitches, and the pattern has links to videos teaching them all. You can make her! And since she’s all hand-sewn, she’s a great portable summer project. Take her to the beach, to the pool, camping, on long car trips – you get the idea.
